Hello HMRC, I am a UK national and a consultant living in England providing design services through my own Ltd company (company registered in UK since 2011, vat registered, 1 person company, I’m the director). I have been offered a fully remote outside IR35 contract that will be executed by me via my company, beginning April 2024. I was thinking of using the digital nomad visas offered by tax free countries esp. Dubai, for maybe upto 2 FY. If I were to move to Dubai, I would have no ties with the UK except for my company. I wanted to understand the following: 1. Based on SRT tests, i will be non resident, as i will have no ties other than my company. I dont envisage working 30 days in the UK either. However, all the work I will be doing from Dubai, will be for my UK company, which in turn is working for a UK client. But as physically I'm not in the UK I don't have enough ties. Is this correct? Does my being the company director change anything wrt SRT, like number of days for UK ties? 2. If I’m classed as non-resident, will the dividends/ salary drawn by me from my company be taxable in UK? If no, then do I need to declare them on my self-assessment?
